Prince Harry made him do it

Believe it or not, there was a time when royalty set fashion trends. In those days, before television or the internet, people tended to be limited to movie stars or royalty for their fashion cues. Nowadays there are other options and you'd be hard pressed to find a fashionista amongst the current Windsor crew. However, some people still do take a fashion page from royalty, and admit to it. For instance, take Julius Hart, 18, who was arrested last September under a by-law in Riviera Beach, Florida, which prevents residents from exposing their underwear. In Mr Hart's case, four inches of boxer shorts. For this crime he spent one night in prison and was fined $150.

Dusting off the freedom of expression chestnut he defended his constitutional right to look sloppy by citing Prince Harry as an example of someone wearing slouchy jeans. Well, Mr Hart..if Prince Harry jumped off a bridge...

The Duke of Windsor and his bright checks must be rolling over in his grave.
